Last time we say Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman, he was being carted off the field after taking a linedrive off his forehead Wednesday night.

Here is the play where Aroldis Chapman was hit

You’re going to be seeing a lot of posts about the terrible, terrible Aroldis Chapman injury from Wednesday and, thankfully, video of the Cincinnati Reds pitcher being hit in the head has yet to surface.
